Minority Mental Health Month (#539)
In minority communities, mental illnesses are often viewed as character or spiritual flaws or moral weaknesses and not as the biological brain disorders they are. Yolonda Kelsor Clay, Jennifer Dishman, and Marisol Valles—known as the MAC divas (Multicultural Action Committee) of the Lexington chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness—are committed to changing that. Yolonda Kelsor Clay talks about MAC's outreach programs. Jennifer Dishman discusses her efforts to reach out to veterans and their families dealing with mental illness, and Marisol Valles talks about connecting the Hispanic community to mental health services.
